This spell enables the magic-user to magically call into being a sturdy cottage or lodge, made of material which is com- mon in the area where the spell is cast — stone, timber, or (at worst) sod. The floor area of the lodging will be 30 square feet per level of the spell caster, and the surface will be level, clean, and dry. In all respects the lodging will resemble a normal cottage, with a sturdy door, two or more shuttered windows, and a small fireplace. While the lodging will be secure against winds of up to 70 miles per hour, it has no heating or cooling source (other than natural insulation quali- ties). Therefore, it must be heated as a normal dwelling, and extreme heat will certainly affect it, and its occupants, adversely. The dwelling does, however, provide considerable security otherwise, as it will be as strong as a normal stone building regardless of its material composi- tion, will resist flames and fire as if it were stone, and will be generally impervious to normal missiles (but not the sort cast by siege machinery or giants). The door, shutters, and even chimney are secure against intru- sion, the two former being wizard locked and the latter being secured by a top grate of iron and a narrow flue. In addition, these three areas are protected by an alarm spell (qv). Lastly, an unseen servant (qv) is called up to provide service to the spell caster. The inside of a Leomund’s Secure Shelter will contain crude furnish- ings as desired by the spell caster — up to 8 bunks, a trestle table and benches, as many as 4 chairs or 8 stools, and a writing desk. The mate- rial components of this spell are a square chip of stone, crushed lime, a few grains of sand, a sprinkling of water, and several splinters of wood. These must be augmented by the components of the alarm and unseen servant spells if these are to be included in the spell; i.e. string and silver wire and a small bell.
